Little one

that was the day ~ I didn’t want to stop you ~ wanted you to fly

Expand

do not fear the leap ~ it is only in mid-air ~ that our wings unfurl

@ Haiku out of Africa

All set

every now and then ~ we rest on the precipice ~ ready to take flight

@ Haiku out of Africa

What we have

a red footpath ~ to the distant horizons ~ a bluebird in hand

Bubble

curling into you ~ I find my own unique space ~ in the universe

Tease

in its mockery ~ the parrot’s voice echoes mine ~ inescapably

Early

this morning’s songbirds ~ brought with them a gentle voice ~ from across the sea
